When I was growing up, my mom used to say, “Susan, you can do anything you set your mind to.” I grew up believing I was capable of anything as long as I decided it was what I wanted to do…except that it wasn’t true.

I know many of you are shocked that I’ve just said that, but the truth is, I think that sentence, “You can do anything you set your mind to,” has an implied assumption that many in the world today have forgotten. These days, so many folks out there believe in the law of attraction, and I’m not saying I don’t, but as I’ve said many times before, the law of attraction requires action and that’s something most people forget.

Likewise, you can’t do anything you just put your mind to…you also have to put your back into it.

I propose an update to the saying, “You can do anything you set your mind to.” I submit the following: “You can do anything you put your mind to and take action toward.” Just knowing you can do something doesn’t get it done. But taking action, well, that changes the story.
